Since the minute Joachim Phoenix started shooting on The Joker, we’ve been getting inundated with set pics of the actor as the Clown Prince of Crime to the point where it has all just become a blur.
But since shooting wrapped, things have gone a bit quiet. That is until director Todd Phillips dropped this intriguing black and white image whilst knee-deep in the editing process for the film.
In contrast to the makeup and mayhem of previous images, this one feels far mor moody as Arthur Fleck/Joker looks on mournfully, even giving off a Western vibe. Of course, you can’t tell much from one pic but it certainly has my intrigue levels piqued.
With DC about to release the bright and colourful Shazam!, it’ll be interesting to see how they juggle tones with this one, as they go for something far darker.
Anyway, with the editing process clearly in full swing now, we can’t be too far away from a trailer of some sort ahead of The Joker’s release on the 4th October, so keep your eyes peeled.
